The museum explores everything about black Americans from community, family, the visual and performing arts, religion, civil rights, slavery, education and segregation.To celebrate the museum's first anniversary, the U.S. Postal Service announced that the museum would be commemorated with a forever stamp.
This stamp marks the second time in recent weeks that the U.S. Postal Service has honored African American culture. A few weeks ago, the Post Office announced a series of stamps based on The Snowy Day, the first children's book to star a black protagonist.The stamp saluting the National Museum of African American History and Culture is expected to be dedicated at the museum this week, and made available for purchase Friday, October 13.
